Well, keep in mind that ext2 number was across 2 8 port boards.  So, I 
wouldn't expect to see much better than 20 on a single 4 port.

As for tuning, you'll have to read through the thread I referenced before. 
That testing was over a year ago -- I have trouble remembering what I had 
for lunch yesterday.
